Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has advised to release the “Frontline” Magazine which had been detained by the Sri Lanka Customs earlier this month.

The customs had detained the magazine as it had re-published an interview conducted with late Velupille Prabhakaran in Sep 1987, while publishing several interviews on the political climate and changes during the last 30 years, in the Asian Region. 

“It was envisaged that by re-publishing the above article would not create any threat or undue influence to the National Security. 

The Prime Minister has informed the customs authorities to consult the Ministry of Media if similar situations occur in the future” PM’s officer said in statement.
